moving on with cutouts

If you take the cut-out shape, here with parts of the actual motif removed to give a more complex shape, and draw it randomly into a more regular shape (shown here into a square, rectangle and circle) you can throw up other combinations of the motif. Also the negatives spaces between the motifs also create new shapes, all these could be used together as they are all 'related'.

Here I have used coloured and decorated paper to give an idea of how the shape will appear in textiles etc. I folded the paper into a long, thin concertina, drew round the motif down the length and cut it out. I then cut the still folded paper into sections, opened them out and rearranged them to create more shapes.
